“Costa Rica?” I thought. “Seriously?” I had never been there nor had any clue how to accomplish that. And then up popped Holly’s adventure last January to Costa Rica. I booked!
It was SEAMLESS from arrival to departure. She answered questions, connected me with other people, helped with reservations and took care of EVERYTHING on the ground. What a treat to be able to hit the ground with someone who had actually traveled there BEFORE to sort everything out. That’s class.
The hotel was booked, room open, food available, and the pool was open. We were able to enjoy a week of laid back, relaxed fun – moving from one activity to another. Sunsets and sunrises on the beach, open air cafes, bicycle rentals organized for us, yoga offered morning and night, and throw in a some surfing lessons. Holly was often on the phone organizing and confirming what was coming next – zip lining included with about 15 different lines as we worked our way down a mountain.
My favorite yoga session was early one morning in a open-air pavilion, with the sound of nature just so soothing. We never left the ground, as Holly and Machelle moved quietly from one adventurer to another, giving little stretches and encouragement.
Did I mention the chef that came along to cook organic, nutritious meals?! That helped keep the extra expenses down. And throw in some howler monkeys the last morning, perfect!
All in all, I was VERY glad I had the opportunity to travel with Holly and the Maine Yoga Adventurers and look forward to future adventures.

Embrace your sense of adventure with a wintertime ascent of Mount Katahdin with Maine Yoga Adventures and Acadia Mountain Guides! 

Acadia Mountain Guides

The remote location and arctic environment of Katahdin makes it one of the most rewarding winter alpine ascents in New England. Reaching the summit at any time of year is awesome but in winter it holds more magic and less people.

Our climb begins with a half-day snowshoe or ski to the base of the mountain where winter camping skills and mountaineering skills are taught. We start the climb the next morning and return back to trailhead by early evening.

Acadia Mountain Guides

Acadia Mountain Guides

This trip is physically demanding but requires no experience. Adventurers are lead by winter mountaineering guides.

our home for the week - Casetta al Padule

Casetta al Padule will be our private oasis for a full week. MYA will offer breakfasts and dinners to adventurers - we'll keep our options open for lunches dependent on where our adventuring takes us. Wine tastings! Olive oil tastings! Nature walks! Thermal pools!

padulenew (29).jpg

Decorative details of the casetta feature the local yellow Sienese marble – a buttery stone marbled with ochre and bronze veins. The open layout is perfect for our group, and its location next to a pasture provides lovely morning views of cows grazing as the fog lifts from the valley. Four bedrooms create space for eight lucky adventurers!

The kitchen will be stocked for preparing delicious Tuscan style meals. A large covered terrace at the back of the house will highlight outdoor dining and gathering. Dinners will be split between the casetta and Spannocchia restaurant for a fully immersive experience. 

Adventurers will be sure to enjoy yoga every day, an excursion either on or beyond the property, and free time to simply soak in the atmosphere (and soak in the pool!). Our group will have an onsite cooking class as well as a wine tasting.

MYA will have two vehicles for ease off-site adventuring. We'll enjoy a day in the city of Siena, explore quaint villages, immerse ourselves in culture, art and nature. Some possibilities...

San Galgano: Visit the remarkable circular chapel of Monte Siepi, site of the miraculous sword in the stone of Saint Galgano. A wine bar with outdoor seating and a terrific view of the valley and mountains to the west, holds the perfect spot for a sunset aperitivo. 
Hot Springs: Relax at Antica Querciolaia thermal spa and Terme di San GIovanni hotel and thermal pools. Indulge in large heated pools - spa treatments are available! Entrance fee is about 15 Euro per adventurer. If we get our timing just right, baths are open late so we can experience thermal baths under the stars!
Colle Val d'elsa: Soak in this charming town off the beaten path with an incredible vegetarian restaurant and open air market on Fridays. And very close by is Colombaia, Biodynamic vineyard, a small production vineyard with incredible organic wines.
San Gimignano: Climb 15 of the original 72 towers that rise above the skyline for an impressive view of the surrounding countryside. The city developed according to a characteristic star-shaped plan along the ancient via Francigena.
Pienza: The city of cacio, cheese, MYA doesn't want to miss this! Adventurers may need cacio to go along with all of the splendid chianti we'll be tasting in the region. 

Cost: $1,800 before Feb 1; $2,000 after Feb 1. Adventurers choose to pay $1,000 deposit or pay full adventure cost.

We'll hike up stunning Fletcher's Hill; the short uphill path is beautiful the whole way and we'll take it nice & easy to soak up nature's autumnal colors.

IMG_2342.JPG

At the highest point with spectacular views of the sea and surrounding islands, we'll slow down with deep breaths and movement. The outdoor yoga practice will be weather dependent.

Haunted Encounters Adventure

Join Maine Yoga Adventures on a close-to-Halloween spooky adventure! Adventurers will enjoy haunted hiking, creepy painting creating, and indulging in eerie edibles...

IMG_1233.JPG

Begin the adventure on beautiful Silver Lake Trails in Bucksport. An outdoor yoga practice will happen simultaneously with a haunted hike, stretching and breathing every step of the way.

As Aislinn Sarnacki reports via the Bangor Daily News, our locale is "a 67-acre park that features 2 miles of community trails that lead to the shores of Silver Lake, which is said to be haunted by a certain ghost - the ghost of Sarah Ware."

silverlake1030-7.jpg

This may not be an ordinary ghostly encounter because this is not just any ghost. This unfortunate gal was murdered in 1898 - when placed in her coffin, her head fell off. Spooky! Foul play indeed!

If Sarah's headless body is still buried at the cemetery that is now submerged by the lake, she may not be completely at rest. Her spirit may be restless and haunting the area. Searching for her head? Searching for her murderer? Sarah's ghost has allegedly been spotted on foggy nights - perhaps adventurers will get a chance to meet her.

silver2.jpg

Following the haunted hike, head to downtown Orono for Halloween inspired eats and drinks at the Black Bear Brewery. This popular gathering place is the perfect setting to come together for ghost stories whilst eating yummy food and testing yummy brews as well! 

IMG_5035.jpg

Adventurers will satiate their appetites then get creative juices flowing with a special spooktacular art lesson by local painter, Laura Manzo, who has taken over for Travis Baker who was called away to LA. We'll use driftwood as the canvas and give this lovely painting a try!

Join Maine Yoga Adventures on a magical adventure to an incredibly sought out locale - ICELAND. Adventurers will enjoy hot springs, hiking, yoga, horseback riding, glaciers, waterfalls, fjords, yummy vegan/vegetarian food, the northern lights and more...

The adventure begins with a divine dip at the Blue Lagoon, one of the 25 wonders of the world. This is as touristy as we'll get so we might as well get the fabulousness over with! It truly is a wonderous place...

Adventurers will relax away their flights and indulge in the silky white water packed with tremendous health benefits. The geothermal water has a unique combo of ingredients - silica, algae and minerals. Ahhh...

The adventure continues as we make our way past breathtakingly beautiful landscapes towards our next destination, Hellnar...

really, it gets more & more gorgeous!

Hellnar is an ancient fishing village beneath the Snaefellsjokull glacier, the king of Icelandic mountains, in the Snaefellsjokull National Park on the westernmost part of the Snaefellsnes peninsula. One of Iceland's most peculiar caves, Badstofa, is there, known for its special light exposure and colorful interior. And the seabirds, they are aplenty and such a delight to see and hear!

For our first two nights in Iceland, our accommodations are at two private houses settled in between the sea and the mountains. Adventurers will have both indoor and outdoor yoga practices, two breakfasts & two dinners, plenty of time to explore nature, and share laughter & stories with our community of adventurers. Machelle LaHaye will be assisting Holly in this adventure with both cooking & yoga - she's a certified yoga teacher and an amazing vegetarian/vegan cook. 

We'll enjoy terrific hikes and spectacular views as we explore the nature reserves and the stunning Snaefellsjokull National Park. And, hopefully in the evenings adventures will get sightings of those amazing Northern Lights!

We'll depart the Snaefellsnes peninsula and head towards Borgarnes, a picturesque town situated on a rocky peninsula. The views from this town and our b&b are outstanding! Mesmerizing! With two glaciers towering in the midst, Snaefellsjokull and Eiriksjokull, and the lovely sea right there at your fingertips. The sunsets are irresistible...

Adventurers will truly enjoy the two night stay at Borgarnes B&B with our hosts Bertha & Jay. Breakfasts and dinners will be covered for your stay. Every quaint room has a view of the gardens or of the sea or both. There's a huge window at the far end of the dining room that captures incredible bird life both in the yard and on the water. Binoculars are available for viewing close up and honestly, just take a couple steps outside and you're right in the mix!

We'll be sure to get in our yoga practices - outdoors if the weather is just right. Adventurers will also enjoy more hiking and sightseeing as we make our way to waterfalls and nature trails. 

We'll visit the community pool with toasty outdoor hot tubs that's just a short walk from the b&b. And, for the Iceland Adventure, we will not miss horseback riding on the infamous Icelandic horses! They are beautiful, well-cared for and ready to ride off into the sunset with us...

Eventually, we'll have to start back towards the airport on Friday. Adventurers can decide whether they need a little more contact with the Iceland wild lands or time to check out downtown Reykjavik or perhaps a bit of both...

There is a great cafe, Glo, in the city that is super tasty that we may want to take advantage of before our flights.

A stroll thru Reykjavik is pretty sweet with an abundance of artwork, eccentric museums, European architecture, and more...

The Iceland Adventure will be chock full of nature, yoga, yummy food and friendship. Excursions & entrance fees are covered. Flight is not included but most meals (the important ones!) are. WOW airlines has a direct flight from Boston which is the recommended 5 hr and 40 minute flight for adventurers. The cost is in the $450 range.
